Mark's Meadow School
By Alex, and Benjamin
Mark's Meadow has a lot of history to it. Mark's Meadow got
from a man named Marquis Fayette Dickinson. He shortened his name to Mark. The
men in the family passed down the land that Mark's Meadow stands on from one
generation to the next; Mark was one of Nathaniel Dickinson's grandchildren.
The Dickinsons sold the land to the Montagues. Eventually, the
Massachusetts School of Education bought the land to build a demonstration
school. The school was built in 1960.
The school houses nine classroom for seven grades
Kindergarten-Sixth. There is also an art room, a computer lab, a library, a
music room, a gym, a Title one room, a resource room, two counseling rooms, an
office, and a cafeteria. There are currently 178 students and 25 teachers in the school. University of
Massachusetts pays for all of the building operations.
